    Yeah this is an attack on the constitution.

    But to both parties the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 is just peachy.

    Go ****ing figure.

    No wonder America is screwed.

    oh, so the Senate was in session on the 4th?

    Look folks, neither the House nor the Senate was in session on the 4th, making Obama's recess appointments perfectly legal.

    Partisan hackery aside, I think everyone should be concerned with the creeping powers of the executive branch. Probably to nuanced for most people who post on a site like this.

    We are still waiting for you to provide where Boenher gave Reid the permission to recess pursuant to the Constitution...You haven't done that yet, why? If it is so laughable to you, and we conservatives are all just partisan whiners, then where is that part of the argument? Why do you keep ignoring it?

    So can a recess appointment be made 3AM any night of the year? Is it legitimate to use this process for people who have not been held up in a filibuster type process. How about "signing documents" which Bush and Obama use to sign a law but point out that they will not fulfill parts they do not like.

    Tired of folks like you who are fine with whatever, as long it is done by "their guy", mindless.

    oh, so you're ok with pro forma sessions to make it appear that Congress is NEVER in recess all year long, so as to prevent any recess appointments by POTUS?

    ehh......neither house was in session on January 4th.

    hence, the recess appointments were legal.

    Those are the rules in place. Don't like em? Change em. But you can't just ignore rules you don't like when they are convenient to you. And a good point that you seem to ignore, is that Reid is the Majority leader of the Senate for Christ sake! He has the ability to bring forth rules changes, nominations, or any other damned business he wants at any time....Your being duped if you think that a minority in the Senate is doing anything Reid doesn't want to happen.
